Djaan Das is Dead


Twelve years later and plagued still by the obligation of duty to the CASS and his guilt over the death of his friend, Subodha Nikku watches helplessly as the tide of the war has turned permanently against the Confederacy.


A Message


Now CASSCOM has received a message of peace from their enemy pleading for an end to this costly war. And so they have sent Djaan Nikku speeding his way to the border to meet with the mysterious Foundlings for the first time in this century-long conflict, on the slim hope that the fighting can finally end.


The Foundling


What Bodie finds at Beta Eridani will change the fates of two men. Bodie must once against choose between the letter of duty to his people and its spirit for the survival of both their civilizations will hang in the balance.

The Foundlings



In the Year of Union 437, an armada of ships appeared on the borders of the CASS. Terrified of again being subjugated to an alien race, the CASS attacked the invaders. A century has passed and still the war drags on, without anyone in the CASS having seen the face of their enemy.


Djaan Das



The greatest strategic mind to come out of the Jandahl Academy in fifty-six years, Bah’dur Das brings victory wherever he goes. He is the hope of every system in the CASS to finally bring an end to this long war. Now he and his fellow Djaans have embarked on a daring plan to lure the Foundlings to the blasted hull of old Earth and draw a noose around the Foundling fleet.


Janus



But Djaan Das has a secret; a secret so big that if it is revealed it could destroy not only him, but the entire Confederacy as well.

Janus

Long ago on Ancient Earth, before the time when humans freed themselves from superstition and religion, among the peoples who called themselves Romans, there was a god named Janus.

Janus was the god of gateways and of beginnings. But just as a door is an exit as well as an entrance and just as a beginning of one thing is also the end of another, Janus was also seen as being involved in every double-edged event, in all transition.

Thus he is the perfect god for the story of my life.
